Officers continue to perform property inspections and serve the appropriate abatement paperwork for those in violation of the Reed City Ordinances for tall grass, trash and vehicles though out the week. Please be aware the placement of yard waste and leaves into the curbs and gutters also is a violation of the city ordinance. It causes problems with the storm drains and will not be allowed. The Reed City Police Department is enforcing the ordinance for those who are non-compliant. Additionally all household trash, including those that are set out on Large Pickup Day, must be in the approved blue trash bags available at the City Hall, or it will not be picked up.
